But the number of reported crimes is down from 2010
The latest crime statistics for this year’s Glastonbury festival were released this morning (June 26), and revealed that there have been 123 arrests at the event so far, up from last year’s figure of 109 arrests up until the Sunday morning.
There have been 309 reported crimes so far, down from last year’s figure of 345. A man in his fifties was found dead this morning in a toilet in the hospitality area of the festival.
According to organisers there are estimated to be 137,616 ticket-holders currently on site, and 2,200 punters have been seen by festival medical staff, down from last year’s figure of 3,054.
The final day of the festival sees headline sets from Beyonce, Queens Of The Stone Age and The Streets. Paul Simon, Laura Marling and The Wombles will also feature on the last day of music at Worthy Farm for the next two years, as the festival is taking a year off in 2012 in order for the site to recover.
